New OSHA/ANSI Safety Sign Systems
A New and Better Tool to Reduce Accidents in Today’s Workplaces
Safety signs, labels, tags and markings can play a key role in a company’s efforts to communicate safety in today’s workplaces.
The problem is that, for decades, OSHA’s regulations for workplace safety signs were based on outdated 1941-era formats that were not aligned with the latest safety communication standards which have advanced the state-of-the-art of warnings technology. Safety sign systems based on the old formats are substandard. While they may identify the hazards, they typically do not give workers enough substantive information.
The good news is that, in September 2013, a very significant development occurred: OSHA endorsed the latest best practices related to safety sign and tag technology by incorporating the 2011 ANSI Z535 safety sign and tag standards into its regulations. With OSHA’s update, organizations can now utilize the latest advances in warnings technology established in the ANSI Z535 standards for safety signs and tags – and be in compliance with OSHA.
This webcast will: explain why OSHA recognized the new and better warnings technology; show how it better communicates safety in today’s public areas and workplaces; and give environmental, health and safety professionals the information they need to develop and install best practice OSHA/ANSI safety sign systems within their organizations.
